Leaves on a spring-fed pool of water

The drought continues, nearly six inches behind normal, and the streams are drying up except for those fed by a spring somewhere above the pool. Autumn leaves caress the surface, fallen from high above, the end of life as a leaf and soon to be compost.



Just a walk in the woods

The path rises and curves over the ridge out of sight creating a sense of the unknown. It is only a few yards before being able to see the other side, further down the path bringing anticipation for the trail and the revelation that comes.

More patio images with Holga pinhole camera

It is amazing how such a cheap plastic camera can create artsy images. I guess that is the popularity of the Holga cameras with fine art photographers. Here are two more images from the patio series.

Purple cone flowers past their peak

I have a series of images created with the Holga 6X12 Pinhole camera, focusing on our patio. One edge of the patio has a small area for flowers. We have planted purple cone flowers, and they are now starting to wilt, making an interesting composition for the Holga. One of the hummingbird feeders perches above the fence attracting several regulars.
